Three Things I Learned From Filming "Brains On Trial," From Alan Alda (VIDEO)

This week on Mondays With Marlo, Alan Alda shared some of the interesting facts he learned about the brain while filming his PBS special "Brains on Trial." Aside from realizing just how much goes on up there, Alan learned to get more in touch with his own brain. He also learned that, although we often hear that we only use a small portion of our brains, it's not true! Scientists claim that people use most of their brains the majority of the time.

Watch Alan's new PBS broadcast, "Brains on Trial" for a fascinating look at neuroscience in the courtroom.

See below for more on Alan's work in science and his legendary career:
